- The Guns Above by Robyn Bennis (646 views)
War is hell, and no less so than on the hurricane deck of the Mistral, an airship whose captain, Lieutenant Josette Dupre, must muster her crew and fight through impossible odds or perish under the guns of their enemies. Needless to say, this book defines rip-roaring adventure.
- By Fire Above by Robyn Bennis (643 views)
By Fire Above picks up right where The Guns Above left off, with strong characters, an engaging story, gripping action, and a world that is both fantastic but also almost believable.
- Memnon by Scott Oden (639 views)
Historical fiction at its best. Memnon is a character that history knows so little about, yet Oden breathes a spectacular life into him and has written a superb book.
- The Bard’s Blade by Brian D. Anderson (575 views)
Sometimes a book just doesn’t work; this is one of those times. The Bard’s Blade may be the beginning of an exciting epic fantasy adventure for some, but I’m concluding my foray into this series with this first book.
- Blood Engines by Tim Pratt (535 views)
Pratt goes to great length to tell us how much of a bad ass Mason is, yet we never see that reflected in the unfolding story. It's for that reason that I'm reluctant to go ahead with this series.
- Hell Divers II: Ghosts by Nicholas Sansbury Smith (417 views)
A fast-paced, fun novel that isn't going to dazzle you with its sophisticated writing but which will take you along for one hell of a ride.
- Of Blood and Honey by Stina Leicht (350 views)
Of Blood and Honey is perhaps the most literary urban fantasy book I’ve read in recent memory. Don't let the "fey and the fallen" subtitle fool you, either. There's a lot of grit here and characters who may surprise you if you let them.
- Hell Divers III: Deliverance (303 views)
Deliverance maintains the fast pace of the previous novels, but the writing, which continues to remain shallow, and the lack of any real character development took this one down a notch compared to the early novels in the series.
- Sun of Suns by Karl Schroeder (158 views)
A little confusing at times, Sun of Suns is nevertheless an excellent book with some beautiful worldbuilding.
- Hell Divers IV: Wolves by Nicholas Sansbury Smith (130 views)
Our heroes take their struggle to survive from the air to the water in the fourth book in the Hell Divers series. With renewed purpose, the crews of the Hive and Deliverance set their sites on the Metal Islands, a place they intend to call home just as soon as they uproot the cannibals that have already claimed it as their own.
